Why are we asking for minor features and changes when the fundamental hardware functionality is not yet fully implemented?
I understand that not everyone requires the hardware, but given that the hardware exists and is sold such with ' complete compatibility' as it's USP, I would expect that hardware functionality to be a priority when sending out updates. http://forum.arturia.com/index.php?topic=82353.120
However, with SparkLE hardware released after Spark CDM I feel that the single version of software (V2) has been retrospectively placed between the two hardware devices and each devices will have it's issue. Having spent almost double on the CDM than users of the SparkLE have, i also feel CDM users are getting a bit of a RAW deal.
I want to use my CDM like a retro old drum machine (It's original USP) but due to the fact I have to keep one eye on my laptop or computer screen, (labelling and reporting in the hardware is not up to scratch) this is no longer possible.
With that in mind, what's to stop just buying the software and buying a generic mid controller and mapping functions yourself and thus saving yourself money. If owning a CDM has legitimate workflow and functionality benefits over the above solution then that should be realised.
